DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle thanks to cgravieuk. Loads of rich fruity malt in the aroma, plums and noteable raisin, almond sweetness. Taste is rich maltys, biscuity toffee, not as much fruit as the aroma, peppery hints with spicey dark fruits in the finish, pluckering in the mouth. Nice bottled ale forsure.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2004
Bottle@Spiesys. Lightly raisiny and failry pleasant. Drier than i expected, i was expecting something quite sticky and raisiny. A little thin in the flavour department, but perfectly drinkable.

SilkTork (5156) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 June, 2004 Bottle @ Spiesy’s gaff. Elderflower and melon and passion fruit aroma. Amber colour. Sweetish up front leading into a faintly dry and metallic finish. Decent. [3.2]
Feb, 2008 500ml bottle from Morrisons. I keep thinking I don’t like Cains beers, then I have one and I like it. I had this last round at Speisy’s place - and it brings good memories. He did a barbie on his balcony, and we opened a Mead The Geueze that threw the cork across the road. There’s a picture somewhere of his face! Anyway - back the beer. This is nice - there’s a fruity sweetness that - yes - is reminiscent of juicy raisins. There’s a chocolate note, and a hint of rum. Echoes of Old Jamaica chocolate bars! The pasteurised process makes itself felt with a strong boiled sweets character to this, and a muffling of the hops into a disagreeable and lifeless bitter clump. But on the whole it’s an enjoyable drop. [3.0]

Sigmund (4933) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2011
500 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 5.0%. Deep golden to copper colour, moderate white head. Fruity aroma with distinct notes of raisins and grape juice. The flavour is a fairly nice blend of malts and raisins, not too sweet, with moderate hops in the finish and aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2008
Bottle. Clear copper with a small head. Nutty and raisiny aroma, like a good bock. Even hints of cellar. Remarkably dry despite the presence of raisins. Body could have been fuller. Quite accomplished for a fruit beer.

berkshirejohn (4378) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2008
500ml bottle from Morrisons - "Official Beer - Liverpool - European Capital of Culture - 2008" Copper with a loose off-white head; sweet and spicy aroma; delicately fruity flavour - purple fruit - blackberry, damson, plum; then becoming sweet and vinous with a warming finish. Rather good.

Cunningham (4292) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2012
Amber colour with a tan head. Sweet fruity nose. A nice rich flavour. Fruity with notes of plum and probably raisins. Also some toffee and vanilla. My favourite beer from Cains.
[Bottle from a friend in Liverpool]
